Monday Hot 5

Welcome to Spring… just kidding! It’s the first full week of March, and we are starting it off with the Monday Hot 5.

A Steve Jobs-Inspired Spaceship Headquarters? Cool!

At his last public appearance in 2011, Steve Jobs presented his plans for a new 2.9 million-square-foot campus facility, complete with a spaceship-shaped building and a tree-filled park. The project is set to start moving employees in as soon as April, and in honor of Steve Jobs, there will be a 1,000-seat auditorium called the Steve Jobs Theatre.

I know where Look is planning their next field trip!

‘It Tastes like Chicken.’ Or does it?

According to a recent Canadian Report, a DNA test shows that only half of Subway’s oven-roasted chicken patty (53.6% to be exact) is actually real chicken. The restaurant is among five others whose chicken has been tested by the Canadian Broadcast Corporation. So the next time you order a “chicken sub, hold the onions”, remember that you are only eating half of what you thought you were.

Guess you need to order two!

A 3D Printed House? What’s Next?

It seems like anything can be 3D printed these days, including houses. The 400-square foot house, located in Russia, was printed in 24 hours at a cost of just over $10,000. Complete with windows, a door, kitchen and hardwood flooring, the house is completely livable for those practicing a minimalist lifestyle.

Instead of waiting for the construction on our new building, I vote that we build individual offices for our employees. They can be done in 24 hours each…

Fly Me to the Moon. Let me Play Among the Stars.

Frank Sinatra’s “Fly me to the moon” is no longer just a beautiful song, but a new reality for two lucky adventure seekers. SpaceX has recently announced plans to fly two space tourists around the moon in 2018 using the Falcon Heavy rocket and the Crew Dragon spacecraft. You could be the next space tourists for a low cost of… millions!

Google’s Deep Learning AI Can Assist with Cancer Diagnoses

What can’t Google do? Accurately diagnosing cancer apparently isn’t out of their realm of expertise. Google has applied an advanced image-recognition system to cancer diagnosis systems. What they’ve found is that the Deep Learning AI project, with some fine tweaking, was able to score an 89 per cent accuracy rating on cancer diagnoses, higher than the 73 per cent accuracy of a human pathologist. Combining these two experts will change our approach to fighting cancer.

That’s all for this week! Stay warm out there.

Tell us what you think.
